Sworn Affidavits, Polygraphs & Beer


So, for the Trump-faithful who believe all sexual accusers are lying, if it was your daughter talking sexual misconduct by Brett Kavanaugh, would you be sooooo stalwart in your support of him?

I’m a gay man with no children, but I have a god son I love very much. If someone touched him I’d risk going to prison defending him.

Will there be NO stepping back and considering that a woman - who has held security clearances in the Justice and State departments - has stepped forward, signed a sworn affidavit (which could be prosecuted for lying under oath) and risked her entire professional life to tell her experience with Kavanaugh?

This isn’t just a quote to USAToday. This is a fucking sworn affidavit.

A LOT of consideration went into this.

And speaking of consideration, we are facing with weighing this: is it POSSIBLE that a white, Republican guy from a wealthy family in the DC area partied hearty, got a bit too ‘alpha’ and lost sight of boundaries while drinking too much in the go-go 80s?

Oh gee, who’s ever heard of that?

I grew up with these guys. In that era.

Oh, no - I don’t think that’s unbelievable at all (insert sarcasm here).

I was a fraternity brother in college who heard the phrase "running a train upstairs" more than once. 

So, pardon me if I find four women coming forward, risking their lives and professional careers, out of respect for a spot on the highest court in the land, believable.

Dr. Ford has already taken a polygraph test that showed the possibility of her lying is less than 1%.

Less than 1%.

Will Brett Kavanaugh submit himself to a similar polygraph test? So far, the answer is no.

An appointment to the Supreme Court is for LIFE. And affects us all for decades.

DECADES.

If Kavanaugh won’t subject himself to a polygraph test, as his accusers have, you have to ask yourself - Why?
